London Roastery To Be Turned Into Net-Zero Carbon Office Space

The local council in London’s Vauxhall region has plans to turn a disused Costa Coffee roastery building into a net-zero carbon office space for businesses.

Taken on by UK architecture firm Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, the famous Old Paradise Street coffee roastery will become a six-storey office building with 60,000 square feet of space.

Appropriately, it’s been called “Paradise.” Go figure.

Inhabitat interviewed the project leaders to find out more:

“Paradise was born of a collective approach to sustainable design, humanistic values and quality place-making, but also the desire to make a healthy and innovative workplace that people would love to use,” said Alex Whitbread, partner at FCBStudios. “Paradise is designed to be part of its local and citywide community and to make a responsible contribution globally.”

It’s great to see London getting more office buildings that are kinder to the environment. For a very old city founded upon industrialization, there are many outdated buildings and facilities running inefficiently on fossil fuels, but this could be another marker of the UK capital’s turning point.

Like much of Europe, the UK is helping to lead the way when it comes to climate change. Let’s keep up the good energy!
